Travis Scott and Drake‘s “Sicko Mode” is easily one of the most enticing hip-hop cuts of the year. The song, an obvious standout off of Scott’s dominating mid-summer LP, Astroworld, serves as the perfect groundwork for a loud Luca Lush flip that will satisfy both dance and hip-hop fans alike with a fitting homage to La Flame and Drake’s chart-topper.
Taking the original “Sicko Mode” and remixing it with his own signature bass-heavy style, Lush plays with pitched down vocal samples, tight hi-hat rolls, and thundering drum builds before a pair of halting, screeching bass breaks. Lush gives off a snarling remix effort, transforming “Sicko Mode” into a rail-rattling festival bulldozer. No doubt Travis Scott struck gold on “Sicko Mode,” but now with a menacing Luca Lush remix that’s bound to start circulating heavily through DJ sets, expect Scott and Drake to be coming through your club’s speakers well past the summer season.
